Essex County FC: 0 BCS XI: 2

Forecasted rain gave way to a beautiful day and a great game. Due to Essex County's lack of alternate jerseys BCS was forced to play in the sky blue kit; which now sees two wins in a row.

After a shaky first 5 minutes or so BCS calmed down and began to play disciplined football through the remaining 85 minutes. With 2 of our strikers out of town, as well as a forward looking midfielder we knew our attack might suffer, and to be truthful we only had a handful of shots the whole game. Though EC FC did no better in terms of attempts on goal. Both goals came from wide play that created mayhem in the 6 yard box with Jan Falkowski running through the keeper to force the ball in on the first goal. The second goal saw Andy Allen finally getting enough of his body behind the ball to force it in after a couple of failed header attempts. Not the prettiest pair of goals, but great scrappy play that showed our determination, and unwillingness to give up.

Perhaps the real story of the game is how well the back line supported the team. They were calm and composed when under pressure and helped distribute the ball out to the attack. All 11 players on the pitch for BCS kept their shape well, and really communicated with each other to keep one another out of trouble. Tom made a few key saves, but for the most part didn't have too difficult a time keeping the clean sheet.

This was an excellent team victory. Two in a row now, well done and keep it up.
